The vendor states that this is an Alvis Speed 20 SD Drop head coupe cars with bodywork by Vanden Plas. The chassis left Alvis on 31st October 1935 and the car was completed by Vanden Plas on 1st March 1936 and was sold through Folletts in April 1936. The car is one of 5 produced as a Model SD with Drop head coupe body design by Vanden Plas. Probably only 3 remain and is the only car of its type registered in the membership list of the Alvis Owner Club. It has a matching set of Chassis. Engine and Body numbers as confirmed by the Alvis factory build-sheet and Vanden Plas records. A complete record of owners since manufacture is documented. Mechanically the Speed 20 SD was one of the most advanced cars manufactured in the pre war years. It had independent front suspension and a gearbox with synchromesh on all gears. The engine was extremely powerful giving the car a top speed of over 90 miles per hour. It is fitted with a high ratio differential which enables it to cruise comfortably in modern traffic. The car is now nearly 80 yrs old. It has over the years had extensive refurbishment in order to keep it in the superb condition that it is today. The car still drives very well and performs strongly. It uses little oil and has undertaken a trip to the South of France and back without any problem. The 2. 5 litre engine was completely rebuilt some 14. 00 miles ago and runs smoothly. In the recent years has had restoration work carried out by Fisher restorations and Red Triangle. The car has had an in depth inspection of the ash chassis and apart from a little shrinkage due to drying out of the wood shows no evidence of decay. More recently the car has a new hood. carpets and trim as well as substantial rechroming. I have invoices for over £20K since purchase. The bodywork is the original aluminium and was resprayed in 2007 in the dark blue colour of its first registration. Together with the car is a comprehensive documentation of its restoration and accompanying invoices. There is a collection of photographs supporting any restoration.
